I prefer to use the Nvidia Server X Settings and set the layout to Absolute (each detail for each monitor) and save that information to the /etc/X11/mhwd.d/nvidia.conf
Then reboot and have the same layout to the Display Settings.
One aspect tho ... i always use the connector that is seen as primary by the BIOS to have my primary monitor connected ... then the layout can be as i want it.
I never tried to use the Nvidia Server X Settings...
Now it works... Sorry, should've tried that from the beginning
Anyway, thank you all very much for helping me out!
That's the important part. Nothing else matters The config trough the Nvidia Settings is something i wanted from the start, but because i really don't know how it plays with the Intel GPU i preferred to have that disabled from BIOS.
Cheers and welcome to Manjaro
hey, i overlooked the obvious too. it happens. glad to hear it worked out.
on my optimus/prime setup nvidia settings work fine, im not sure bumblebee, and optimus-manager says not to use nvidia settings and use configs for any changes. thanks for the save
Just to be clear, the OP is not a dualGPU case, even if Intel exists, it is not used at all. It is a plain Nvidia. Using Nvidia Utility is a no-brainer (if there is a word like this..)
here in the US that term gets used all the time
Oh and everytime I reboot my computer, I have to re-configure and re-apply everything from the Nvidia control panel or my problem comes back...
Form NXSS, while you select the last tab (nvidia-settings Configuration) press Save Curent Configuration in the default location it opens that window. It will be called
After that open with a text editor the file
.xinitrc and add at the end the line:
exec nvidia-settings --load-config-only
reboot to see if works.
Yep, that worked, thanks!
I'm going to look into
mhwd, seems like I have loads of things to learn!
